As Marvel enters Phase 3, one of the biggest questions is who will play Captain Marvel, the first superheroine to headline a Marvel movie. Variety may have the answer, as they’re reporting that reigning Best Actress Brie Larson is in “early talks” for the role. (Worth noting that this smacks of agent maneuvering to me, and could be the kind of on-purpose leak meant to push producers into making a decision. Full Story

As you know, I don’t really care for musicals. There’s a seediness inherent in most musicals that I feel the singing and dancing completely erases (anyone who thinks The Sound of Music has a happy ending is nuts). But there are a few exceptions.

A report on Page Six came out last night that Disney is in a “panic” over Stars Wars: Rogue One not testing well, and has ordered four weeks of reshoots to tweak the movie.

Are people ready yet to admit that the X-Men movies aren’t very good? There is no reason in a year in which people accepted Captain America and the f*cking Vision in the same film for an X-Men movie to look as drab and boring as X-Men: Apocalypse looks. Sixteen years and nine movies into the franchise, and nothing has f*cking changed in the world of the X-Men, despite a decades-spanning storyline. Full Story
